Green Team Roars at Leos
The 2007 Leo Award nominations (celebrating excellence in BC Film and Television) were just announced and it was a golden day for the Green Team.
One of our stars, Jillian Fargey, scored a nomination for Best Lead Performance by a Female in a Short Drama for her work in Nostalgia Boy. This is Jillian's third Leo nomination. She's a previous nominee for Protection and Hotel. Jillian plays Jenni Holm, the waitress in The Green Chain -- the character who keeps the chain together.
Our cinematographer, Kirk Tougas, was nominated for Best Cinematography in a
Documentary Program or Series for Shameless. A shameless plug for Kirk. He has received two previous Leo Awards for Best Cinematography, most recently for Obachan’s Garden.
And Michael George -- one of the unsung heroes of The Green Chain, the guy responsible for way too much work in the editing suite... scored a nomination for The Sparkle Lite Motel. It's a contender for Best Short Drama that Michael produced with Cory Kinney, Peter Dashkewytch and Mel Weisbaum).
And the winners are... announced June 1st and 2nd.
Last year Tricia Helfer was nominated for two Leos -- one for her role as Number Six in Battlestar Galactica (which she won) and another for her guest-starring performance in an episode of The Collector written by Mark Leiren-Young.
Meanwhile... one of our other Green team stars just finished a super guest-starring role. Tahmoh Penikett played a super-powered soldier - and Lois Lane's ex -- in Smallville. But even Lex Luthor couldn't turn Tahmoh into a true villain. Tahmoh switches from fighting Superman to fighting fires in The Green Chain.
